Actually, Human Bird Flu is a good thing. The World is infested, overrun with Humans. This population is outstripping the Earth's resources and fouling the environment for all other species. Bird Flu is Nature's way of thinning the population to a more sustainable level. If not Bird Flu it is inevitable that Nature will devise some other condition to afflict Mankind as a control over an exponentially multiplying population.
The ends do not justify the means in this case. I take your point that there is human suffering because these kids are alive but I cannot be the one who would abort them.
I do think it is an individual thing; either you hold life dear or you don't!
Malthus wasn't wrong. How many people in the world starve to death each year? I don't think the world can support 9 billion people. Well, maybe if they all lived like Traugs of the Sahara.
Population is now about 6.5 bil probably maxing out at 9 bil later in this century and then towards the end of the century beginning to decline.
Here is a great summary of these trends.
Doomsters have always been around. Malthus was wrong.
� As we all know the majority of immigrants in the US is from Mexico. � Don't insult us, they are no immigrants, just illegal undocumented aliens (29% of our jail population). All they seek is dual citizenship and collect SS in Mexico, and where will the money be coming from?
Be real! Kiki
Quite a bit of truth in what you wrote, but the Hispanics may have a say in it before it is all over. It looks like the white Europeans may be on their way out. And, they will probably be treated worse than the black ever were.
The death rates exceed the birth rates in the US and most (if not all) the western European Countries. Therefore, the �actual� population is truly decreasing in the US and Europe.
What is causing the large increase of population is immigration. As we all know the majority of immigrants in the US is from Mexico. In Eastern Europe the immigrants are from the Middle East. As a result, the Muslim populations are eventually going to be the majority in these countries. I know this is a big concern for countries like Sweden that initially encouraged the immigration as they were looking for help supporting the decreasing workforce. Only time will tell what impact this has on the world, environment, religion, economy, etc.
